Sketchbooks

As an Urban Sketcher I try to carry my sketchbook with me as much as possible. Keeping my eyes always open, scanning, seeking, weighing, and sifting, I sketch whatever interests me. However, a wider story will always be the guide. That story might be in a momentary gesture of a person, or about paths radiating out from an ancient village, or in the transient nature of an anticipating blossom. The story can also be about something never really experienced, only dreamed of.
